Halloween Orange Cupcakes

Makes 12

Beware! These cupcakes are scarily scrumptious…


  • 100g soft margarine
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Grated rind of 1 orange


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Line a 12-hole bun tin with cupcake cases.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and beat well until smooth.
  3. Half-fill each paper case with mixture.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Tip: We decorated these cupcakes using our Duo Colour Icing Kit. We made a batch of butter icing, flavoured half with vanilla extract and half with cocoa powder, but you could also use orange extract instead of the vanilla.
